Howie Turns Five

Today we celebrated Howie's fifth birthday. We got together at a park for cake and ice cream. It was a gorgeous evening and we had a blast celebrating Howie.

I LOVE this boy!! He is SO sweet!!!
Will is so tough!
 Ashlyn loved Kaitlyn
 Beautiful Erin!
 Handsome Dan
Austin was annoyed that I was taking his picture so he was pulling faces. He's going to hate me for this picture one day. Oh well, that's what aunts are for, right? 
 This girls make me smile!

So, what have you been up to?

There's nothing much going on here. Here are a few pictures from my phone showing how much I'm not up to- 

This is a shot of Katie and Erin roasting marshmallows for our s'mores

We went to lunch for Manja and Tim's birthday. You gotta love those horrible hats that they put on your head while singing. I always shudder to think who's nasty head those have been on. 

My friend Brooke got married. She and her hubby had a Super Mario Brothers wedding cake. It was so Brooke- I loved it!!

I think I have a stalker... 

Mom was in Logan for a while so I went up for dinner. Mom, Tracy, Kathleen, Piper, Ellie, Rylee and I split this yummy dessert.

The Parlotones were back in town. We had a fabulous time at the concert!

Random picture of Ashlyn at a baby shower for one of the women in the Primary presidency.

Mom and I were in Salt Lake and I discovered she had never been to The Cheesecake Factory. We rectified that horrible oversight very quickly. I, of course, had to have the red velvet.

I found a new place to get a pedicure. They do a fabulous job but their decorating skills need some help. I was so appalled by the pink flowery and checkered wall paper I had to take a picture to document it.

A couple of my co-workers and I ate lunch outside today. The grounds of the hospital are so gorgeous. Most of the time we eat inside at our desks but we really need to take greater advantage of the view we have.

What? You're still here?!? I'm shocked! The dullness of this post almost put me to sleep- I'm impressed you're still awake. Well, that's it for now. I'll try to have more adventures so my next post will be more exciting.

Grandma's 90th Birthday

Last Saturday we got together for Grandma's 90th birthday party. We had the party on the patio of her assisted living facility.  It was a gorgeous afternoon and I think she really enjoyed herself. 

I spent most of my time trying to get this little princess to decide we could be friends. I think by the end of the afternoon I had made progress. I'm sure when I see her again for the family reunion I'll have to start all over again.

It's our choice

I found this on Pinterest and had to share it here-

We can choose to live our lives with the joy of the front row or solemness of the third row.
I hope I always choose to live life in the front row :)

The best kind of friends are the ones you can be completely silly with ♥
